Rachel King and Dillon Constant in the WIZM studio Monday for La Crosse Talk PM to talk about two different fields within La Crosse County government that are helping make the community more sustainable and healthy, and how the community can get involved.

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.

King is an epidemiologist with the county health department, while Constant is the county planner.

On the show, we discuss the county’s two phases of its Climate Action Plan, parts of which include transitioning the fleet to EVs and zero emissions by 2050, plus how the community can get involved with upcoming listening sessions.

We also talk how the environment impacts people’s health — from warmer weather increasing the prevalence of disease carrying bugs to even distant wildfires keeping people indoors — and how actions the county is doing go hand-in-hand with the community’s well-being.
